Awesome Roads in Kottayam

Road trips are fun. Time for some in-land roadtrips. These great roads are spread across the 5 Taluks (Vaikom, Meenachil, Kanjirappally, Changanacherry and Kottayam) in Kottayam. There are adequate wayside amenities viz. restaurants, fuel stations, ATMs, stop-over shoulders.

The roads are:

1. Vaikom – Thalayolaparambu – Ettumanoor
2. Ettumanoor – Pala – Erattupetta
3. Kidangoor – Manarcadu
4. Kottayam – Pulikkal Kavala – Kanjirappally
5. Pulikkal Kavala – Karukachal – Changanacherry
6. Changanacherry – Alappuzha
7. Chengalam – Kumarakom stretch of the Kottayam – Kumarakom road

Smooth and free-flowing, these roads are a pleasure to take on.
Tastes best when chilled. Feels best on Sundays and holidays.

The following route map includes all of the above roads to form a single route.

  1. Hello KP team,

    Very glad to see your amazing works to celebrate every good moment in Kottayam.
    By the way, any news about the prestigious projects – W mall and the twin theatres?

    Hope you will reply soon.

    1. Thank you very much, Akhil 🙂

      I have contacted Wexco builders for an update on W-Mall – still awaiting a reply.
      Though a clear opening date isn’t known yet, finishing works are progressing at the Twin Theatre site.

  2. Thanks for the better roads in Kottayam. I feel better when I enter into those roads…comfortable and enjoyable…
    But the roads and traffic system in Kottayam are pathetic compared to Thodupuzha. Let Kottayam Pattanam get inspiration from Thodupuzha…

    1. Yes, these roads are indeed a pleasure.

      About the town roads and traffic system; true, it’s a tough experience now but it can’t go on forever.
      Ours is an old town with some serious space limitations which make things a bit harder.
